We got up early to see the Olympic torch pass near to where we live. It was all very exciting and good natured. Lots of happy police officers on bikes, motorbikes and standing by the road. Grim faced security officers in grey uniforms who I think are also police, accompanied the torch bearing lady as she passed us by. They did occassionally crack a smile though, in between scanning the crowds.
A lady wearing her flag.
The Olympic alien, as Andy put it. I have not got to grips with the mascots so am not sure which one this is.
A quite perturbed cat spectator.
The happy torch bearer. I have tried to find out her name but information is unclear so I am not sure who she is I am afraid.
This bus driver was right behind the procession and looked happy to be included in the general clapping and merriment.
Blackheath Standard at about 8.30-absolutely bursting with people! We went for a lovely breakfast at Gambardella's which finished off the whole event nicely.
